As I was about to renew an satellite radio subscription, I went through the list of fees and found the prices unchanged.  But, as I click through to checkout there's a new line:

U.S. Music Royalty Fee      $21.79.


I cannot buy the satellite radio subscription without this "fee". 

So, how do they get away with claiming one price and then adding in a "fee" later. 
Maybe the subscription should be $0 and then there's a $100 satellite operation "fee", a $25 on-air talent fee, a $30 "cost recovery" fee, ...

And the Fee Processing Fee...

If you're bored you could call them and have them explain it to you. The weirdest thing that seems to happen to me in these situations is that they "can't" waive the fee, but they can give me a credit in the same amount as the fee.
